LAKE HOMES REALTY

When Karen Packett asks her clients if they would like to ride with her to look at houses, they may discover that they will not be riding in a car or even on a road. Many times, they will find themselves in a boat, cruising around various lakes, such as Fort Loudon, Tellico or Watts Bar.

As a real estate agent for Lake Homes Realty, Karen knows her way around the water and is an expert at finding her clients lake front or lakeview properties. “I tend to spend more than just a few days with my buyers trying to help them understand the housing market in our area,” she explained. “I want them to recognize all the amenities each area has to offer, and, in general, I want to help them to get that warm feeling which helps alleviate the stress that can come when trying to find that special home.

For all my lake front or lakeview buyers, we try to get out on my boat and give them a taste of the Lake Lifestyle they’ll be buying into. We spend time on the lakes viewing the homes they are interested in purchasing from the water as well as exploring the marinas and restaurants on these lakes. It’s a different type of lifestyle, and they want to experience it.” Having lived in Knoxville her entire life, Karen feels very comfortable helping her clients find their perfect lake home.

“Since I’ve lived in this area all of my life, watched the creation of Tellico Lake, live on Fort Loudoun Lake and play on Watts Bar lake, I know the area well and love everything about it,” she stated. “I enjoy getting to know my clients and their families on a personal level and then watching their faces when they close on that special home they’ve been looking for or sell their home so they can start the next chapter in their lives. Nothing makes me feel more satisfied than helping people discover just how magnificent this area is and finding them their perfect home.”
